A term used in the rating of torque synchros. It is expressed in the number of
inch-ounces of torque required to pull a specific synchro 1 degree away from its normal position; for example, 0.4 inch-ounce per degree .
(TR)—A type of synchro that converts the electrical input supplied to its stator
back to a mechanical angular output through the movement of its rotor .
TORQUE SYNCHRO SYSTEM
A synchro system that uses torque synchros to move light loads such as dials, pointers, and other similar devices .
(TX)—This type of synchro is functionally the same as the CX, except that it
is used in torque synchro systems .
In a gyro, a vector representing the rotary motion applied to change the direction of the rotor axis. The torque vector represents the axis about which the applied force is felt .
(RT) The equivalent resistance of an entire circuit. For a series circuit: RT = R1 + R2 + R3 ...Rn. For parallel circuits:
Vapors emitted by a substance that can do bodily harm .
TR RECOVERY TIME
Time required for a fired tr or atr tube to deionize to a normal level of
Operational phase of a fire-control or track radar during which the radar beam is kept on the target .
Radar that provides continuous range, bearing, and elevation data by keeping the RF beam on the target .
